I'm sorry I don't have any pictures at this point. If there is interest in the car, I will meet locals or take pictures for those of you that aren't close.
Last May, I bought this car needing a clutch and planned to fix the clutch, drive it for the summer, and probably move it on. When I got the engine and trans out, I discovered that the engine was worn out and needed a full rebuild. I took the engine to FAT in Orange and one thing led to another and I had around $13k into the engine rebuild. It's a 2056 with ported heads and basically everything they do to an engine short of more displacement. Once that was done, I took the trans to Rancho Trans in Fullerton and they did a quality rebuild but didn't go crazy. That was another $2500 or so.
While the engine and trans were out, I wanted to clean up the engine bay and once I got into the car, discovered that there was rust under the tank as well as under the seats and a repair in the rear trunk. The rust, along with some other body issues, have me stopped in my tracks. I'm decent at mechanical work but body work is not something I should be doing. Unfortunately, the quotes I am getting lead me to believe I'm going to be another $10k into this car before it's ready to put back together. I just don't know that I am ready to spend that much more money on this car.
If I could get what I have into the engine and transmission (have all documentation), I would include the chassis for free. There are new tires and powdercoated wheels on the car.
I have a trailer and will be happy to transport the car for you anywhere in SoCal (outside SoCal within reason...we can talk.)
Please feel free to give me a call at 760.684.9584 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The car is located in Norco, CA.
How bad is the rust? I'd be willing too help get it structurally sound...
Will try to call later today BUT I'm not a fit and finish body guy and want to be super clear upfront.
I can help you make her structurally solid as (part of the community) but if exterior ugly is the issue she will still be ugly.
